Man, what *balls* the organization had to release this show officially on DP25. It's the epitome of the crazy, dangerous, edgy sound the band took on in '78, maybe as a result of the smack, maybe as a way to simply make things lively after a year of total, gold-medal perfection the year before. This and the previous night are essential '78 companion pieces.

So legend has it that good ol' mescaline is the culprit this evening, and you can tell, based on the sheer volume of sheer GROWLING that goes on here - there is little to support, on the other hand, an idea that band simply went for a wild, one-shot attempt at this kind of vocalization. It's just too weird. And, ultimately, what only matters in regards to any mescaline vs. no mescaline voodoo is if it makes the performance interesting to listen to, or affects it negatively. I'm edging towards the positive - but, really, you've got to hear this thing.

Would love to hear the outtakes from this Miller board - there were quite a few tunes DP25 left off the final product...
